Get ready for the Runway 5K!

By Holly Lurgio

Runway 5K set for April 28

As a reminder to everyone, Northampton Airport will host the 2nd Annual Runway 5K on April 28!

Money raised from the 5K will serve children, young people and families whose lives have been impacted by foster care in the Greater Pioneer Valley. Not a runner or walker? Cleaning out your closet that day? That’s ok, see the flyer below for a SUPER easy way to donate to support Team No Sparks! Any size donation is appreciated!

Here are some photos from last year’s event. While we certainly hope this year’s weather is better, we still had a blast in the rain!

Incredible generosity at Elm’s inaugural CAN-Struction extravaganza!

A GIANT HIGH-FIVE to everyone who pitched in, got creative, teamed up, and lent a hand at Elm’s inaugural CAN-Struction extravaganza! Your awesomeness knows no bounds! Thanks to your incredible spirit, we’re sending over 1,000 nonperishable goodies off to food pantries in Westfield, Middletown, and Marlborough! 

Rebecca Hart from the Westfield Food Pantry popped by to express her gratitude and check out our can-tastic creations. She mentioned how crucial these donations are, especially during this time of the year when folks are still reeling from holiday expenses and trying to keep warm.

And let’s talk about the Elm crew— When they weren’t crafting sailboats and plugs out of cans or fashioning bunnies from crackers, they were busy putting together a whopping 65 Easter baskets chock-full of treats for our local military families. A round of applause to all for making such a meaningful impact in the lives of others!

Interested in volunteering a couple of hours at the Westfield Soup Kitchen? Here’s how…

On Friday, April 26, Elm will be serving dinner at the Westfield Soup Kitchen. We are still in the planning stages, but if you could spare a couple of hours that afternoon we would love to have you! Reach out to Holly if you’re interested!
